Hello all, Trying to provide some solid guidance to our son and out of my league with the workings of the ROTC programs. Is it possible to achieve an AFROTC scholarship if one has not applied for the scholarship but enrolls in the program in their first semester at college? A little background: Our son is a senior in HS, and very interested in a military career (he has been involved in the Army JROTC program for the past 4 years). We have encouraged him to explore as many opportunities as possible and recently he has become very interested in a career in the AF, now he is struggling with the thoughts of a career in the Air Force or the Army. We are very supportive of any direction he wants to pursue. He has recently applied for the Army ROTC scholarship but unfortunately did not realize his interest in the AF until too late to apply for the AF scholarship. He was told at his AROTC interview that he is very well positioned for a possible scholarship in the 3rd board (he missed the first 2) Now I want to stress that in my opinion, a scholarship will not not determine his career goals. We will support him with or without a scholarship but we do believe that it is important for him to understand the consequences of his decisions as a scholarship would be really nice if it works out for him. We know there is absolutely no guarantees here but; if he were to get a scholarship offer from the Army and turns it down in hopes career in the AF, is it realistic, if he performs well, that he could get a scholarship offer from the AF after he has enrolled in the program? I know there are a ton of "ifs" but just curious about if and how it happens. Really appreciate any input you may have.
